scrum board 2.0 – first impressions
I’ve been off for a week. Nothing to emphazise, but the team and I set up a new version of our Scrum Board. We did this at the beginning of a new iteration / sprint, so I missed a lot. Our sprints start on Monday, so I set up the new board on Friday. The team needed to add all the stories and activities. After a week I re-entered the office, and: Voila! We had 4 new incidents / problems last week, one already solved, one under clarification, two not yet handled (pink cards). We finished some more technical driven stories (yellow cards) and are working on our core stories for the current sprint (blue cards). All at one glance, better than before. One user story is already finished, great job!
- Only three working columns for stories / actvities (Planed, In progress, Done)
- Additional Information column
- Less stories!
The latest point seems to be the main driver towards the increased usage. We focus on only three weeks now (8-9 before). So, we have less stories, but more details. With more details I have better controling on progress and bottle necks etc.
Again, I’m lookig forward. On what? On the team feedback. What could be their impression? I’ll let you know. One of my firsts job on Monday will be the update of the burndown chart. Will we meet the sprint goals? You bet!
